Notes and observations about this plant

Hardy in Baltimore
Grew in zone 7 Northern Baltimore, in rocky soil on a slight berm, without any winter protection for 5 years. With six hours full sun it quickly became a large, beautiful, full specimen and never showed any signs of winter damage. Then I moved and had to leave it behind!
As soon as I get rid of an ugly silver maple on my new site, I will start again with this great plant. (Posted on 1/5/2011 by Tee Pee).
